Company Description

Our facility:  Thrive of Fox Valley

This brand new 68 bed facility dedicated to the short term rehab patient.  This is NOT a long term care facility.  The average length of stay will be 4-14 days and we will have 5-10 admissions per day.  Most of our “guests” will be joining us after an orthopedic surgery, cardiac event or after a medically complex stay in a hospital.  This is a rehab and recovery focused facility with a large therapy team of in-house therapists.  We are here to bridge the gap from hospital to home, and make it a smoother, safer, transition on the road to recovery.

This is a busy facility and we are looking for an MDS Coordinator experienced with high volume admissions/discharges.
